The word JOY is a super positive expression of great happiness.  We all generally strive to be in this state and relish the times that it’s present in our lives.  The term “oy” is a Yiddish expression which means something to the degree of “oh boy” relating to something unpleasant.  In my new ventures with vocabulary I’ve been studying and dissecting words and came across “joy.”  Being Jewish I immediately saw the oy and then started to think about how “oy” can certainly be a part of Joy.  Tomorrow I’ll share my thoughts with you about that.  For today’s brunch for thought- how do you see the “oy” in joy?
